In the 1986 film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", the song Ferris Bueller used to lip-synch was 'Twist and Shout'. He specifically lip-synced to the Beatles' version of the song in the movie. The performance by Bueller (Matthew Broderick) was part of the parade scene, which was not choreographed and was one where the cast said, "we were just making things up to make the scene more enjoyable."

The entire film's plot is one where Ferris Bueller has an uncanny skill at cutting classes and getting away with it. Intending for one last day out of school before graduation, Ferris calls in sick. He "borrows" a Ferrari and embarks on a one-day journey through the streets of Chicago, IL. The high school principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) is on Ferris' trail and he is determined to catch Ferris in the act of cutting out on a day of school.

The song 'Twist and Shout' and the whole spontaneous scene with the song helps to make the whole film a sweet, warm-hearted comedy. It properly and largely received positive reviews from both fans and critics.
